It really amazes me how strong the raft over the railway tracks must be to support all of that steel! I hope they got their calculations right!

Just noticed the Lime st web cam view. Will have to keep an eye on Broadgate rising from a different view point.

Broadgate webcam may have to be moved soon do you think?

I noticed that. Maybe the dimentions mean it isn't efficient to have a concrete core? Either way it means its going up a helluva lot faster!

This project is rising incredibly fast. Really! It's going to be a stunner for sure.

Thanks for the pic updates guys

I did scan through this thread quickly, but I couldn't see how tall the lower 12-level building will be. I also checked Emporis but couldn't see any details on it. Anyone know?

BTW Why are there 2 women erotically showering together in place of a render of London in 2012 on page 1 of this thread? LOL http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=283649

The webcam views have been enlarged. Images were 640 x 480 pixels before. They are now 800 x 600.

Wow, London's so feminine and pretty (minus the concrete blocks) in that pic plus she's rising fast in that right corner.

Trying to post a picture: this should be the first hint of the main cladding.
